1 game requirement leagues rejoice! Alex Rodriguez replaces Jeter and gets shortstop eligibility! Too bad it’s probably not going to happen. Girardi said it hasn’t even been discussed, no matter how alluring Ensberg would be at 3rd. Oh, well. We can dream, right? Anyway, here’s what I saw yesterday:

Johnny Cueto – He left down 2-1 and he still looked as impressive. 8Ks against zero walks is the makings of a great pitcher. The Bill Hall homer was a no doubter, but the first run was all Adam Dunce’s fault.

Jimmy Rollins – Left the game with an ankle injury, but he should be back in the lineup tomorrow.

Jair Jurrgens – He didn’t look bad considering Kelly Johnson’s got the range of a one-legged turtle.

Oliver Perez – Dude looks good. 18 wins and 200Ks? Looking like it could happen.

Matt Garza – Headed to the DL. He’s got some kind of radial nerve damage. If you have him, I’d grab someone, maybe…

Brian “The Brain” Bannister – He looked unhittable when facing Arod. Against everyone else? Hittable.

Mark Reynolds – I’m fingercuffed and it feels so… eh.

Joey Gathright – Absolutely no one’s team should be lagging badly in steals if Gathright is sitting on your waivers.

Dice-K – Well, I don’t have him on any team, but he looked as good as last year’s advertisement.

Detroit Tigers – The city is a slum that should be condemned; the team looks worse.

Yorvit Torrealba – Doesn’t look good.

Justin SpeierHafner just made Shields the interim closer.

Miguel Tejada – I told you he’d be pissed off that people were mentioning ‘roids and his name.

Joey Votto – Yesterday, Dusty said this, “You know Votto’s going to have more power and productivity, but, right now, Hatteberg is a better hitter.” Then he plays Votto and he goes 2-for-3. The eff I know what’s going in Dusty’s mind.

Eugenio Velez – This guy’s like Chone Figgins’s faster brother. He tried to turn a single up the middle into a double, deciding very late to stay at first, then he stole second, then he ran to third and was thrown out. He’s like a black Forrest Gump. Tim Flannery, the Giants third base coach, needs a sign that reads, “Velez, stop!”

Jake Westbrook – Pitched another good game. You never know where a career year might come from.

From Around The Web

  1. I’m really hoping Westbrook has that career year. I picked him up in one league after noticing his scoreless spring training. Somewhere else I saw that he’s throwing a regripped changeup that is supposedly the reason why he’s been cruising along so far.

    cueto had no business pitching out there in the 6th inning he was at 90 some pitches after the 5th and dusty baker let him hit in the 5th down 1-0 in the top of the 6th with a man on 2nd and 1 out. should of come out right there especially for a young guy.

    and eric gagne blew another save last night how long before i start to get saves instead of holds out of David riske i

    Ugh, my girlfriend crashed my computer at 4:30am. I guess I’m not the only one surfing porn. Anyway….

    @Jon — Great info on the changeup. I think he’s worth a look.

    @Wilson — Milwaukee is probably in my top five for US cities and I’ve been to NY, Los Angeles, Vegas, Austin and Miami — their team has been fun to watch the last couple of years. No decision overtly influenced by Benjis. Wanna bring up Braun? Let’s do it. Bench Jenkins? Sure. Play Hart. Okay. So it’s with great regret to say, Gagne was a hella poor money decision-slash-personnel decision. Now it will be interesting to see how long they let him lose games. I think everyone in the Brewers organization knows Riske (hell, even Turnbow) is a better choice to close, but the greenbacks say it’s Gagne. I’m hoping he’s out of the closer job sooner rather than later, but the greenbacks tell me he’s never going to be far behind taking over the closer role again even if he loses it.

    BTW, Baker made the wrong decision to leave a pitcher in too long? No way!

    Grey,
    If your girlfriend’s surfing porn you are way ahead in the game of Life. If she has a fantasy baseball team you can just drive that little plastic car into the spot with the rainbow at the end of the game…you have won! Here’s the non sequitur of the day….my offense is just killing me…I’m dropping like a stone through the standings despite being at or near the top in every pitching category. Miggy Cabrera, Posada, Thome and Hafner are killing me. No pop yet from Kinsler, sizemore or Hamilton either. Only guy getting it done is A. Rios (Thanks Grey!). I’ve been offered B. Butler, P. Hughes and L. Milledge for Grady Sizemore….am i crazy to be thinking about that? I feel like I’m getting Hughes on the cheap…your take?

    I have a friend whose girlfriend is into fantasy baseball and I gotta tell you, it’s more of a turnoff than a turn-on. Anyway, you’re panicking. Do not do that trade. Besides Posada, that offense will pick up.

    ok, thanks for talking me down….I can’t promise it will not happen again though…it’s an office league and its permeated the entire work environment here…in fact, I probably should be working right now…
